Jesse & I are hosting Thanksgiving again this year and gearing up for a table to fit 22 people. Though I should have more pressing issues on my mind (like, you know, cooking turkey for that many people), I'm (of course) most interested in how to make my house feel cozy & autumnal for all of our guests.
Last year I posted about hanging a wreath over the glass door leading into our mudroom. The secret is a Command Hook upside down on the back of the glass. It's not QUITE time for full throttle Christmas decor yet, so I strung up some ornamental corn & ribbon.
Here's a close up shot (a little confusing because the glass is reflecting the side of the house):
Besides our corn-decor, we've also gone nuts with gourds everywhere. Hanging out with our mice candleholders, joining a photo of Will the Baby in our mudroom, sitting in a flowerpot on the front step...
As usual, I'm dreaming of a fancy and elaborate table setting for Thanksgiving but I know that, for the sake of my sanity, we'll need to go simple. I'm thinking more gourds, more corn, and a few flowers. Stay tuned and stay homey!
